Technically, the facilities design gets a Tier III level of security and an energy efficiency by a PUE that does not exceed 1.8. The electric facilities project has been designed for 16MW total power and a security level of TIER IV (Uptime Institute). The implementation of the Data Centre will be developed in phases, with a IT initial capacity of 2.5 MW. In terms of physical Layout and room’s topology the Data Centre based on the structure: aisle cold – aisle hot.
The high density racks have liquid cooling systems in-row type. Reconciling these two wills -maximum functionality and minimal environmental impact- is the essential challenge of the project. The application of criteria and good practices of sustainable design have allowed the project is LEED certified.
